I think this is great. We can't expect to have our cake and eat it. He's only allowed to play for us because he's an established international. It's a shame he'll miss Leeds but he'll be back in the timezone and raring to go for Ipswich on Tuesday week.
Last night I thought Billy would start today but like StevieSteve I now think Chunson will.
Hopefully he'll have a blinder today, a blinder in Toyota and come back ready for Ipswich.

Good luck Chung. I always found trips to Japan a particular swine on the jet lag front - 9 hours time difference in winter and it's due East so you whiz through day and night and back to day again before arrival - though it's better on the way back with an elongated single day or night.

Anyhow - match day again and it's very odd.

Saints fans are an amazingly diverse bunch of characters from many different backgrounds - and indeed, as is evident on here, they are based in many different parts of the world too.

Today eleven players operating under a curiously elaborate set of man-made rules will be trying to put a round bag of air into their designated net more times than than another set of eleven can put it in their's.

Win or lose - no love will be won or lost; no life-saving harvest will be gathered or destroyed and no fortune will be made or squandered.

And yet by 4.45pm many thousands of us will be upbeat and well set up for the week ahead - or downcast with a pall hanging over us.

We must be all mad.

Hahahaargh hahahaoooer dumbledopper dipper groooopydee brrrrumph!

You didn't mention the fact that they may have held a ploughing match on that pitch earlier this week.
